Our founder Maggie hosted the event at her home in Los Angeles. We received just under $50,000 USD in donations. And with nearly one hundred people in attendance, we feasted and convened with one another before making our appeal for investigative journalism platform that considers the perspective of women and children first and foremost. For us, this approach to traditional news reporting is critical for several reasons: women and children are disproportionately affected by institutional failures - interpersonal violence, war, and environmental degradation. Yet, the way that we communicate and exchange stories often focuses on the cause of these problems and can often leave the solution out of the story. AMA-G is how we’re proposing to harness the power of investigative story-telling to the benefit of our mothers and daughters first, and humanity after that.
